Back in 1992 I had a double bypass surgery. In the process, they split my sternum and when they were done in there they wired it back together. The Dr. said I could not go riding until at least 10 weeks. The idea of my chest being wired together got me nervous enough that I purchased a good quality chest protector that also covered much of my back and shoulders.
On the first day of the eleventh week I load my bike up and when I was done with work that day I headed for the Danskin area with my oldest son. We were cutting across a big shale slide when my front tire washed out. It stopped suddenly and over the handle bars I went. Just as I was about to hit the rocks, I thought, "This is going to hurt or worse". When I landed on my back, it knocked a little wind out of me but no pain involved.
Since then, when riding single tracks and rough country, I have always worn my chest protector. I even made a camera mount fitted to it that can be seen on my Icon. I have eaten the ground a few time since then and I know that the chest protector has save my ribs numerous times.
